    A global healthcare company’s immediate business initiative was to move their enterprise applications to Google Cloud. These applications required NFS & SMB interfaces and could not be re-architected.

  • ic-solution Solution

    Cloud Volumes Service gave the company’s application teams an easy way to provision NFS & SMB shares with the high performance and availability required. Additional capabilities, like snapshots and rapid copies allowed them to protect and gain value from their data sets.

  • ic-results Results with Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud
    • Moved multiple enterprise applications to Google Cloud 10X faster than expected.
    • Improved application user experience and application reliability.
    • Simplified operations through NetApp’s fully managed service.

Windows Based Applications

Move, deploy and run Windows based applications easily, more securely and
more cost-effectively on Google Cloud.

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer Challenges

    A major manufacturing company was struggling with their cloud-first initiative, which involved migrating their custom built Windows based application to Google Cloud requiring shared SMB endpoints.

  • ic-solution Solution

    Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud was the only SMB capable file service that could give them a simple path to build out a hybrid infrastructure that could deliver a high-performance file share to support their Windows-based application with low latency.

  • ic-results Results with Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud
    • Simple and fast deployment of high-performance SMB service.
    • Faster migration to Google Cloud without refactoring applications

Atlassian Suite: Confluence and Jira


CVS for GC

  • ic-challenge-1 Customer challenges

    A world-renowned lifestyle, clothing, and accessories retailer wanted to build a multicloud-ready environment that could scale horizontally across the entire organization and provide seasonal burst capabilities. However, their Atlassian applications couldn’t be refactored, and so they couldn’t move the unstructured files that belonged to them. The solutions they tried fell short of the performance and data protection capabilities they needed.

  • ic-solution-1 Solution

    Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud was the only NFS and SMB capable file service that provided a holistic solution and met the requirements of workloads that called for high reliability in production. It also provided the necessary protection for their business-critical data through its backup, snapshot copy, and replication capabilities.

  • ic-results Results
    • Service reliability improved by 30% relative to on-premises performance
    • Standardized process of migrating the unstructured data layer of other applications to the cloud
    • Faster migration of unstructured data layers to Google Cloud without refactoring applications
